Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
Hair tissue mineral analysis is a non-invasive and highly sensitive testing method that combines energy medicine, biofeedback and bioresonance to detect imbalances, inflammation and reactions to stress in the body.
The test identifies the substances that the individual is reactive to for sensitivity tests, and mineral composition of hair for the mineral analysis. Minerals are essential for growth, healing, vitality and wellbeing. They participate in almost every metabolic process in the body. There are many aspects of modern day that reduces our access to minerals. Hair testing is a valuable screening tool available in everyday and preventative health care.
I use the services of 2 hair testing laboratories.
